Thank you to everyone who attended the Magical Moments ladies night at Cellarman's Alehouse last night. The fundraiser was SOLD OUT and was a huge success. Everyone had a great time, and it was all to support our local kids in their extra-curricular activities.
Thank you so much Jane...it was a great night!

A HUGE thank you to Taylor Baumann (14), Cameron Baumann (11) and Nico Jenni (15) who held a lemonade and bake sale to help the kids in the village programs. Together they raised an amazing $1,100 for WATV. This is so fantastic and means so much to everyone. You have put a lot of smiles on everyone's faces.
Thank you to everyone who donated through our Labour Day Tagday weekend blitz. Thanks to you, children in the village are truly excited about going back to school and enrolling in their favourite extra-curricular activities. Our volunteer coin rollers were busy on Saturday keeping up with their job (below)!
On the one year anniversary of the passing of WATV's co-founder, we remain endeared to the memory of Julianna Matyas and the mission she established for the charity - to assist children to participate in extra-curricular activities that they otherwise could not afford to do because of family circumstances. Julianna's presence will always be with us as we build and grow the charity.
